Girl Gamers: Game Experience May Change During Online Play

Why female gamers have a tough time being taken seriously by the hardcore crowd. Does the online gaming community need to get it's act together and accommodate for girl gamers? (Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Culture, Halo: Reach, PS3, Xbox 360)

Because you keep making articles like this and expect special treatment.

We all get insulted online, deal with it.

We just had an article from these people about the same thing.. It's even on the front page.. We don't need one of these "I'm a gamer girl and I hate how im treated online" articles a day!. We know, We know, WE know.. get over yourselves.

"If you can't take the heat get out of the rocket propulsion test chamber!" -Freeman's mind

-Votes- WTF, Like this site ? NO

Article spam = bad.

I wrote this article and I'm not a girl gamer.
Did you read the article, or just post a comment about the title and description?

I'm only asking because I tried to say pretty much what you have - did it not read that way?

I read the article and I'm sick of these articles we get flooded with them. I think that people are just going to find A#oles where ever they go online and offline we all get some heat from time to time, and I don't make a big deal about it. If Girl Gamers are having a hard time in a lobby than they can leave, and thats that. If they/you stay in the lobby and let your self get attacked by other gamers and get upset about it than its your own fault. You can leave or mute them, if messages become a problem block them,Report them,change your account name, or make a diffrent account(like you said more or less in the article).

I can understand wanting to meet a guy/girl online and share intrests of video games with, but COD is not a dating site its a game. Other than this being an extreamily boring and tired topic thats seems more like spam now a days, you did do a good job and maybe I was to fast to vote the site down, but seeing this topic come up over and over again I lost all controll, just like this whole lesbian/gay gamer thing which is just ridiculous, why can't they just call them selfs gamers and leave it at that whether your a girl,lesbian, or gay gamers where gamers we don't need an extra lable, we play the same games.

Im also tired of people trying to turn gaming in to a "dating site" I just saw the other day a gay guy that wanted to start a gay gaming website just so he could meet other gay gamers and date them. -sigh-

I love when the words "girl gamers" are close to the word "hardcore", along with games like Halo and Call of Duty. Wait no, I actually hate it.

I thought only girls played those games to begin with.

This is the third "girl gamer" article I've seen in a month. Seriously, get over yourself.
BelieveinGhosts  +   995d ago
haha, this is becoming too frequent for my liking. Why cant we just play games and enjoy ourselves instead of trying to bait attention.

There is already false stereotype of Gamers portrayed by the media as a nerdy and violent individual with no social life. It seems the influx of all these articles is trying to turn gaming as a whole into a Girl thing. If we are not careful, we gamers will suffer the same perception that soccer gets in USA which is "Its a sport for girls".

Are girl gamers trying to take over? Instead of integrating quietly into the gaming community like the rest of us. The truth is that just like in many sports, Gaming is a male hobby. But i am glad there are also females involved in gaming.

Why does it matter that ignorant people think poorly of your hobby? Aren't you worried about suffering the perception of gaming being a hobby full of ignorant jerks?
BelieveinGhosts  +   995d ago
@LordHighCameron, I am from England and so it pains me what Americans think of our National Sport.
First, you guys choose to call it soccer .

Second, you guys say it is a sport for europeans and weaklings.

Third, you then say its not a man's sport an its for girls.

I enjoy NBA, NFL so why cant you accept our sport.
LordHighCameron  +   994d ago
I'm Australian, dude - I enjoy soccer. Gridiron is for girls (all that padding, no manhood) =D.
